the internet lies

Look closely at this story...the gentleman (and we use the term loosely) in the picture is NOT the head of Cheltenham Ladies' College. Honestly, we're not sure if he can spell college

I suppose if you’ve been involved in an internet business long enough, have been posting long enough and have been referenced as a source enough, something like what you’re seeing here is bound to happen.

We’ve all seen weird stuff on the internet but let me tell you, having a news site plaster my face across a page and label ME the head of a UK women’s college was beyond weird.

I know what you’re thinking. But this is not something that was photoshopped or any thing like that. This was a page on the internet from a purported news site.

 Here's the close-up version featuring the 'head' of Cheltenham Ladies' College

The nice woman in the below photograph likely studied hard, rose up through the ranks and is a fine educational leader. The gentleman on the left “allegedly” never went to class before noon.

On the left is a voice-over talent. On the right is head of a college. How does a news organization confuse the two?

So how does this happen? There is no way any human confused me for the leader of this college, so it’s my guess that some news bot botched this.

But too many people take what they read on this internet as gospel so heed this warning – this article proves it is not!

  2. So happy to see that a secret high school fantasy came true for you …

    Almost.

    At least (according to the caption) you’re are standing firm on homework.
